This year marks the 25th anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s debut album, Doggystyle. The collection filled in as a formal prologue to the then-cutting-edge rapper who was working close by Dr. Dre.
Ahead of the album, he caught eyes with his work on “Deep Cover” and The Chronic single, “Nuthin’ But A G Thang.” Snoop recently sat down with Questlove who stunned the Doggfather with his extensive music knowledge.
Snoop Dogg didn’t realize that Dr. Dre tested Questlove’s parents, Arthur Lee Andrew Thompson and Jacqui Andrews, on “Nuthin’ But A G Thang.” In an interview with Snoop, Questlove uncovered to him that Dre sampled the 1973 tune “Are You Looking” by Congress Alley – the gathering Quest’s parents were in.
“You know you sampled my parents, right?” Quest revealed while playing the original song. “That’s my mom and my dad.”
“What?!” Snoop replied in shock.
Questlove went onto uncover how he and Black Thought were hype back in the days when they heard the song play in Philadelphia.
“So when the shit would come on The Box in Philly and I heard that — Yo, me and Tariq lost it. Like, ‘Yo, that’s your mom and dad!’” he says. “It was like we won the lottery ticket!”
Snoop Dogg is set to show up on’s Questlove Supreme tomorrow (December 19th) on Pandora. Peep the clip of their discussion underneath.
